“Signing up to dating websites has proven successful for many singles seeking a match.

Unfortunately it has also proven popular among scammers who prey on people’s vulnerabilities to steal their money, particularly around sentimental times of the year.” “Scammers are experts at preying on people’s weaknesses and will spend months and even years grooming victims and lowering their defences.

Inevitably, the fraudster will spin a tall tale about why they suddenly need your financial help, ranging from medical emergencies to failed business ventures to needing to rebook flights to visit you,” Ms Rickard said.

“Once victims realise that their admirer is actually a criminal, the emotional consequences can be devastating.
